AIADMK executive council meeting on Monday has decided to announce the CM candidate on October 7 for the Assembly elections expected to be held in May next year.

After a five-hour meeting of the council, the party’s deputy coordinator K P Munusamy said the AIADMK has decided to “stay united and fight the election” next year.

This comes amid various reports of friction among CM Palaniswami and Deputy CM Panneerselvam factions. Reportedly, there was a discussion in the meeting over the CM Palaniswami approach towards the Panneerselvam faction but there were no heated arguments as such being expected earlier.

Meanwhile, there was no discussion on the likely release of ousted party chief V K Sasikala from jail even as informal negotiations were held for a possible merger.

The council passed 15 resolutions on Monday, including the government’s political stand against the Centre’s three-language policy. A resolution reiterated that former CM C N Annadurai’s two-language policy will continue in the state.

Another resolution demanded that the Centre release the statutory dues under GST totalling Rs 4,073 crore, dues under various schemes amounting Rs to 16,505.32 crore and subsidies of Rs 3,185.04 crore.
